Just a Picture;

Moon over the Chugach Mountains October 11, 2011;

[IMG][/IMG]

For lack of a better place to post that I stuck it here. i shot that 32 times over 15 minutes and have a wide range of lighting displays. no trick filters and I don't have a Photo Shop program. I did have a polarizer on the lens, shot at 2 sec. f22 @100 mm and that is what it looks like for real.

Hope you like that

Glad you liked it Phil, Gary you too!

Fall is special here as well as spring, the angle of the sunlight because of our position being close to the North Pole makes for some incredible sights. I don't always cart a tripod with me but this time of year it sometimes happens. Gary, if you take a look at my blog entries you'll find a whole raft of fall photography there.

Just download the photo and look at the metadata. It will tell you all that. In fact, unless he edited the EXIF data after the fact, the numbers he put up are inaccurate (not that it matters), it's a very nice shot.

Oops,

1.6 seconds @ 155 mm, the photoshop imprint on the details is from a friend removing a 'gob' from the upper right quarter of the shot. There was some jive in my lens and it created a spot that looked like an eagle flying but it was just dirt, fiber, whatever on the inside glass.........................

Dutch, Nikon D80 10.2 MPX early version of this body when introduced. Lens Tamron

Thanks

And Mike.......... thank you too, the real gift is that the mosquito's are done for the year and I can hang out and wait for these kind of shots.

1.6sec exposure and you still have detail in the moon, excellant. Usually the moon gets blown out when trying to keep detail in the foreground. And no split neutral density filter either (?). A keeper, well done.

Very nice photo Ard! Photos at dusk are fun. There's a sweet spot, and you only find it when you're reviewing the photos afterward. I'd say you did an excellent job of capturing this scene.


I get the impression that you're not only living the dream, but you have complete respect for your surroundings as well. Thanks for sharing a glimpse of your world.

respectfully,

Thank You, thank you;

Maybe I'll push the envelope and place another thread in Destinations and stack it with 10 images per post. I'll stay away from the fish shot and show all landscape photos. I have been fortunate to have been in the right place at the right time over the years.

middlecalf; I've been thinking on getting a ND filter for pictures but at this time I have a polarizer for each lens and that's it. I thought on ND filters for water pictures but then shot these offhand with the PL and said 'oh well'.............

They seem to lose a little in the definition department when uploaded to the web but I was using the first one for a desktop for weeks and loved it.

Since this is Spey Pages I better include this one
